ENTICED (c, Medaglia d’Oro—It’s Tricky, by Mineshaft)
O/B-Godolphin (KY). T-Kiaran McLaughlin. Lifetime Record: MGSW & GISP, 7-3-1-1, $595,680.
One of the chief questions about Enticed heading into the Derby centered on whether he’s an aggressively nimble enough horse to make his own breaks and adapt to in-race adversity in a large field. Mud was something he had handled once before, but the slop on Derby day was a different beast unto itself, and this big-striding Medaglia d’Oro homebred never looked in it to win it while getting bumped, brushed, jostled, and eventually fanning five wide into the lane. The GI Travers S. now becomes a logical mid-season goal.
